RCWL-0516 microwave sensor module – radar
Working voltage: 4 – 28V. It provides a convenient 3.3V output to drive a microcontroller.
The forward side of the microwave sensor module is the side with the components. This side should face the objects being detected. Do not obstruct the forward side with anything metallic. The back side should have a clearance of more than 1cm from any metal.
Microwave sensor module specification:
2.Operating Current:2.8mA (typical);3mA (max)
4.Transmitting Power:20mW (typical);30mW (max)
6.Output Voltage Driving Capacity:100mA
7.Trigger Way: repeat trigger
8.Output Control Low Level:0V
9.Output Control High Level:3.3V
|3V3||3.3V regulated output.|
|OUT||Trigger: high (3.3V) if motion detected. 0V normally.|
|VIN||4 – 28V supply voltage|
|CDS||light sensor related.|
On the back of the board (the side without components) are pads for 3 optional components (0805 dimensions).
|C-TM||Regulate the repeat trigger time. The default (unpopulated) time is 2s. An SMD capacitor to extend the repeat trigger time. Pin 3 of the IC emits a frequency (f), and the trigger time in seconds is given by (1/f) * 32678|
|R-GN||The default detection range is 7m, adding a 1M resistor reduces it to 5m|
|R-CDS||the VCC is in parallel connection with CDS(RCWL-9196 pin 9) through R-CDS. Connect the LDR at the R-CDS to turn off the detecting function at night.|
